I Nephi CHAPTER 21

Again, listen Israel, all that are cast away and driven out due of the wickedness my people's pastors--- yes, all that are cast away, scattered abroad, of my people, Israel. Listen, Oh islands, to me, and listen people at a distance; the Lord has called me from the womb; from my mother's gut has he mentioned my name.

And he made my mouth like a sharp sword. In his hand's shadow he hids me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver he hids me.

And said to me, "You are my servant, Oh Israel, in whom I'll be glorified.

Then I said, "I have worked for nothing, I have used up my strength for nothing. Surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God.

Presently, says the Lord that shaped me from the womb, that I should be his servant bringing Jacob again to him (though Israel be scattered). Yet, will I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my power.

And he said, "It is a easy thing that thou should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel. I will also give you as a light to the Gentiles, that you may be my salvation to the farthest reaches of the earth."

The Lord says this, "The Redeemer of Israel, his Holy One, to him whom man despises, whom the nations hate, servant of rulers. Kings shall see and arise, princes also will worship, because the Lord is faithful."

The Lord said, "At an acceptable time I have heard you, oh Islands of the sea, and in a day of salvation have I helped you. And I will preserve you, and give you my servant for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit ruined heritage;

That you may say to the prisoners, "Travel; to them that sit in darkness --- show yourselves. They will feed along the way, and their pastures will be in every high place.

They will not be hungry nor thirsty, neither will heat nor the sun kill them; for he that has mercy on them will lead them, even along springs of water will he guide them.

And I will make all my mountains a path, and my highways will be exalted.

And then, oh Israel, behold, these will arrive from a distance; and note, these from the north and the west, and from the land of Sinim.

Sing, oh heavens; and be joyful, oh earth --- because the feet of those who are in the east will be established; and break forth singing, oh mountains; for they shall be hurt no more; since the Lord has comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.

But, note, Zion has said, "The Lord has forsaken me, and my Lord has forgotten me." But he will show that he has not.

Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet will I not forget you, Oh Israel.

Note, I have engraved you upon the palms of my hands. Your walls are always before me.

Your children will hurry against your attackers; and they that made waste shall part from you.

Look up and around and behold; all these congregate together, and they will come to thee. And as I exist," says the Lord, "You will surely dress with them all, like an ornament, and bind them even as a bride.

For your waste and desolate places, and the land of your destruction, will even now be too narrow because of the inhabitants, And they that swallowed you up shall be distant.

The children whom you will have, after you have lost the initial, will again in your ears say, "The place is too narrow for me; give way to me that I may live.

Then will you say in your heart, "Who has begotten me these, seeing I have lost my children, and am empty, a captive, and separating to and fro? And who has raised up these? Note, I was left alone; these, where have they been?

This says the Lord God, "Note, I will lift up my hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard for the people; and they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

And kings shall be your nursing fathers, and their queen your nursing mothers. They shall bow to you with their face to the ground, and lick the dirt of your feet; and you will realize that I am the Lord; for they will not be ashamed that wait for me.

For will the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captives delivered?

But the Lord said, "Even the captives of the mighty shall be removed, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered; for I will deal with him that deals with you, and I will save your descendants.

And I will feed them that oppress you with their own flesh; they shall be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine. And all flesh shall know that I, the Lord, am your Savior and Redeemer -- the Mighty One of Jacob."

I Nephi CHAPTER 22


And presently it occurred that I, Nephi, having read these things which were scratched upon the brass plates, my brothers came to me and said, "What's the meaning of these things which you read? Note, are they to be understood as spiritual things (which will happen according to the spirit) and not the material?"

And I, Nephi, replied, "Note they were revealed to the prophet by the Spirit's voice; for by the Spirit are all things revealed to the prophets, which will happen to the children of men according to the material.

Therefore, the things of which I have read are things pertaining to the both temporal and spiritual; for it appears that Israel, sooner or later, will be scattered everywhere over the face of the earth, and among all nations.

And note, there are many already unknown among those at Jerusalem. Yes, the greater portion of all the tribes have been led away; and they are scattered across the islands of the sea; and where they are none of us knows ---  except that they have been led away.

And since they have been led away, these things have been prophesied regarding them, and also all those who will afterwards be scattered and be confused, because of the Holy One of Israel; because against him will they harden their hearts. Therefore, they will be scattered throughout all nations and shall be hated of all men.

Regardless, later they shall be care ford by the Gentiles, and the Lord has lifted up his hand upon the Gentiles and set them up as a standard. And their children have been carried in their arms, and their daughters upon their shoulders. Note these things of which are spoken are temporal, as are the covenants of the Lord with our fathers, and it regards us in the days to come, and also all our brothers who are of the nation of Israel.

And it means that the time will come that after all of Israel has been scattered and confused, that the Lord God will raise up a mighty nation among the Gentiles, yes, even upon the face of this land. And by them shall our seed be scattered.

And after our seed is scattered the Lord God will proceed to do a fantastic work among the Gentiles, which will be of great value to our descendants. Therefore, it is regarded as their being nourished by the Gentiles and being carried in their arms and on their shoulders.

And it shall also be of value to the Gentiles; and not only the Gentiles but to all the nation of Israel --- for the understanding of the covenants of the Father of heaven to Abraham, saying. 'In your seed will all the kindred of the earth be blessed.'

And I'd rather, my brothers, that you should understand that all the races of the earth cannot be blessed unless he shall uncover his arm before the nations.

Therefore, the Lord God will proceed to uncover his arm before all the nations, in bringing about his covenants and his gospel to those who are of the nation of Israel.

So, he will bring them out of captivity, and they shall be gathered together to the lands of their inheritance. And they shall be brought out of obscurity and out of darkness, and realize that the Lord is their Savior and Redeemer -- the Mighty One of Israel.

And the blood of that large and hateful church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall turn upon their own heads; for they shall fight among themselves, and the sword of their own hands shall fall upon their own heads, and they shall be drunken with their own blood.

And every nation which shall war against you, O Israel, shall be turned against each other. And they shall fall into the pit which they dug to capture the people of the Lord. And all that fight against Zion will be destroyed, and that great whore, who perverted the correct paths of the Lord, yes, that large and hateful church, shall crumble to dust and great will be its fall.

Notice, says the prophet, the time quickly arrives when Satan shall have no more power over the hearts of the children of men. For the day arrives fast that all the proud and those who do wicked deeds shall be as stubble. And the day will come that they must be consumed.

For the time soon comes that the complete wrath of God shall be poured out upon all the children of men; for he will not allow the wicked to destroy the righteous.

Therefore, he will preserve the righteous by his power, even if it so be that the his full wrath must come, and the righteous be preserved, even to the destruction of their enemies by fire. Therefore, the righteous need not fear; for the prophet says that they shall be saved, even if it so be as by fire.

Note, my brothers, I say to you, that these things must shortly come. Yes, even blood, and fire, and ash must come, and it must be upon the face of this earth. And it comes to men according to the flesh if it be that they harden their hearts against the Holy One of Israel.

Note, the righteous shall not perish, for the time surely must arrive that all who war against Zion shall be cut off.

And the Lord will surely prepare a way for his people, to the fulfilling of the words of Moses, saying, 'A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up for you, like me; him shall you hear in all things whatsoever he will say to you. And it shall occur that all those who will not hear that prophet shall be cut off from among the people.'

And presently I, Nephi, declare to you, that this prophet of whom Moses spoke was the Holy One of Israel. Therefore, he shall execute righteous judgment.

And the righteous need not fear, for they shall not be confused. But it is the kingdom of the devil, which shall be fabricated among the children of men, which kingdom is established among them which are in the flesh—

For the time Quickly shall come that all churches which are built up to gather wealth, and all those built up to gather power over the flesh, and those built up to become popular in the eyes of the world, and who seek the lusts of the flesh and the things of the world, and do all manner of iniquity; yes, all those who belong to the kingdom of the devil ---- they who need fear, tremble, and quake. They are those who must be brought to dust -- who must be consumed as stubble, and this is according to the words of the prophet.

And the time quickly arrives that the righteous must be led up as calves of the stall, and the Holy One of Israel must reign in dominion, might, power, and great glory.

And he gathers his children from across the earth and he numbers his sheep. And they know him and there shall be one fold and one shepherd. And he shall feed his sheep, and in him they shall find pasture.

And because of the righteousness of his people, Satan has no power. Therefore, he cannot be set free for the space of many years; for he has no power over the hearts of the people, for they dwell in righteousness, and the Holy One of Israel reigns.

And now regard, I, Nephi, say to you that all these things must come according to the flesh.

But note, all nations, families, tongues, and races shall dwell safely in the Holy One of Israel if it be that they repent.

And presently I, Nephi, finish, for I dare not speak further as yet concerning these things.

Therefore, my brothers, I rather that You should consider that the things which have been written upon the brass plates are true; and they testify that a man must obey the commandments of God.

Therefore, you need not imagine that I and my father are the only ones that have testified, and also taught them. Therefore, if you shall be obedient to the commandments, and endure to the end, you shall be saved at the last day. And so it is. Amen."

I bet there's some volunteer work that you could do that would actually benefit humanity in lieu of masticating Mormonism and spitting out whatever this is. :lol: But I guess this is what Jesus would do. :lol: :lol: :lol:
